Does Yusuf mean liar in Arabic?

E-mail Print PDF
Two LiarsIrfan Yusuf in his blog (Supplication without hijab. Jan.) claimed clitoridectomy is a pre-Islamic Indonesian custom:
“Perhaps our imams can remind Indonesian imams that not all vestiges of Indonesia's indigenous pre-Islamic customs are worth holding onto.”
..and Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens (Feb) claimed Islam doesn’t ban playing musical instruments and was peaceful—HA,HA.  Both are lying!   Is the problem their name or their religion?   Surely Islam doesn’t support lying to promote Islam...well, YES IT DOES!     No doubt both earned ‘allah’ points, another virgin perhaps???
Irfan Yusuf  (Muslim commentator, writer eg al-Age):  Irfan’s attempt to blame ancient Indonesian culture for clitoridectomy is grossly offensive to the initial Buddhists, Hindus and others and shows his great ignorance of Islam!
 
Sherene Hassan (Heraldsun 20/6/07),  Hanifa Deen (Age 30/5/07  p3 and Age, p 15 1/6/07) etc have already pushed the ‘clitoridectomy’ is an African problem, nothing to do with Islam lie!   In Islam, clitoridectomy is supported by Mohammad in ahadith and Islamic laws (religious basis) and spreads worldwide with Islam--will we blame the natives of every country?  Although not part of Christian teaching , a lower % of Christians (many Muslim converts) and some Animists in areas of Africa under Islamic control for 1300-1400 years with Islamic culture forced onto them also practice it (cultural basis).     Our ‘western’ Muslims (and the PC people) are happy to slander others but lack the moral courage to face Islamic text, laws and practices!!!!
 


Is Irfan Yusuf aware that-
1) Islam’s text and laws support clitoridectomy: In Reliance of the Traveller, a classical manual of Islamic sacred law re 'circumcision' we find the Arabic actually says -

"Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male,  but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the clitoris (this is called HufaaD). "  (p59)(Shafi'i Law)
 
(Note the English version is falsely translated as 'prepuce ' of the clitoris!!  Often used by Muslims to trick us!!)
Clitoridectomy is obligatory under Shafi Law (eg Egypt), sunna for Hanbalis and worthy of merit or a courtesy to the husband in other schools of law!"

Clitoridectomy is supported by several ahadith.
a) Abu-Dawud   Book 41, No.  5251:   Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah:    A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina.  The prophet (peace be upon him) said to her:  Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.
(Note::  The powerful Mohammad did NOT stop the procedure/clitoridectomy yet he stopped adoption when he wished to marry his adopted son's wife Zainab, regarded as incest by the Arabs because adopted sons were held as sons!)
 
FGM in Iraq

b)  Many ahadith across several sets cite Aisha re the need for ghusl when the 'two circumcised organs’ come in contact.  Why would Aisha, Mohammad’s child bride talk of ‘the 2 circumcised organs’ contacting if she wasn’t ‘circumcised’!  And Mohammad’s other wives-clitoridectomy was common?  
Eg Muslim  book 3 No. 684:     Maliks Muwatta Book 2, Number 2.19.73 also  74,  75,   77 :  And Maliks Muwatta Book 20   No.  20.46.161 ---very long, penalties for contact between a male and female during hajj including those circumcised parts!

c) some hadiths note  "Cicumcision is a sunnah for Men, MAKRUMAH (noble deed, honourable) for women"

d)  another hadith recounts an address to al-Ansar  (Medina converts) women, endorsing female circumcision

Islamic laws and practices are based on the hadith and Koran.  Despite a 19th century hadith revision, the clitoridectomy text remains!Pakistani Girlis
Like the hajj ceremonies, clitoridectomy  may have existed pre-Islam but was fully taken up by Mohammad and Islam-though thanks to other cultures, not always practised.   Clitoridectomy will continue while Islam’s text/laws endorsing it remain unchallenged!  

2) Prominent Muslims support it eg On 12/2/2007 Al-Arabiya TV aired  'Al-Azhar University Scholars Argue over the Legitimacy of Female Circumcision Practiced in Egypt.'  Muhammad Al-Mussayar: notes "All the jurisprudents, since the advent of Islam and for 14 centuries or more, are in consensus that female circumcision is permitted by Islam. But they were divided with regard to its status in shari'a. Some said that female circumcision is required by shari'a, just like male circumcision. Some said this is the mainstream practice, while others said it is a noble act. But throughout the history of Islam, nobody has ever said that performing female circumcision is a crime. There has been a religious ruling on this for 14 centuries." ...  "First of all, there are reliable hadiths in Al-Bukhari and Al-Muslim which support female circumcision....."Female circumcision is no less valid just because it was practiced in Pharaonic times and in the Jahiliya.  Islam accepted some customs, which were harmonious with human nature, and rejected others, which contradicted human nature." (reported by http://MEMRI.org  27/2/2007 and FGM Network)

3)  Australia’s mufti Sheik Fehmi al-Imam supports clitoridectomy:   Re clitoridectomy :  Sheik Fehmi al-Imam of the Preston Mosque replied to Pamela Bone "You probably don't need it but women in hot countries do"!!! (Melbourne   Age 21/7/01 p7  Pamela Bone–also unaware clitoridectomy was endorsed in Islamic law)  
Abc.net.au (11/5/06) and News.com.au note that over 50 females have been treated/year in Sydney hospitals following FGM.  Some girls are sent overseas for the procedure but others are mutilated here.  

4) Indonesian Muslims mutilate Christians: Christians of the Maluku islands Indonesia etc were not only attacked and killed by Muslims but those ‘converted’ to Islam on pain of death were subjected to clitoridectomy using their own kitchen knives! (Christina's Story;  Sydney Morning Herald 27/1/2001;  Conversion crusade rends the Spice Islands  The Age 27/1/2001).  

5) Indonesian Muslim groups support clitoridectomy: Assalaam Foundation treasurer Syarief Hamid, claims religion and the prevention of cervical cancer (Muslim abhorrence for any knowledge of female anatomy!!) are reasons to practise clitoridectomy! He says. "The religious view is, if you are not circumcised you won't have clean genitals after you urinate. If then you pray, your prayer won't be legal." The practitioners who came from the local hospital always cut a piece off the clitoris, he says.  Masitoh Chusnan, from the women's wing of Muhammadiyah, one of Indonesia's two biggest Muslim organisations, says the circumcision of girls is regarded in Islam as an honourable practice. "The Hadith did not say it's obligatory, but it is recommended to have it done," she says. "There is the Prophet's words saying girls must be circumcised but you should not cut too much." !!  (www.smh.co 13/1/04)  

6) Muslims across a wide variety of ‘cultures, ’ ethnic groups, countries, continents continue to practice clitoridectomy after 1400 years—what they have in common is Islam!  Many millions of females are mutilated and denied the right to full sexual pleasure!   
 
As for those Muslims who endorse the ‘reduce but do not destroy’ view, the clitoris has more nerves than the head of the penis and also has a ‘shaft’ so would Muslim men like a chunk cut from the head of the penis or the whole penis trimmed!!!  How about a ‘real trim’ Irfan, not just a little nip of some floppy skin....

I keep writing this because Muslims and involved others, too afraid to ‘upset’ Muslims, just don’t tell the truth

*********************************
Yusuf IslamAnd for the warbling Yusuf Islam recently portrayed on yet another Islam propaganda show on their ABC,  Islam does forbid playing musical instruments...
Bukhari Volume 7, Book 69, Number 494v: Narrated Abu 'Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash'ari:  that he heard the Prophet saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. ……Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection." 

*Laws:  Reliance of the Traveller: r 40.0 Music, song, ..(Mohammad speaking) r40.40.1 p774, 775
(1) "allah mighty and majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, …."
(2) "on the day of resurrection, allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress."
(3) "song makes hypocrisy grow in the heart…"
(4) " This community will experience the swallowing up of some people by the earth, metamorphosis of some into animals, and being rained upon with stones."  Someone asked "When will this be, o messenger of allah?" and he said "When songstresses and musical instruments appear and wine is held to be lawful."….
(“all of this is explicit and compelling textual evidence that musical instruments  of all types are unlawful,” p775) Ridley
r40.2  p775 bans playing or listening to musical instruments but allows the tambourine at weddings…
r40.3 p775 bans singing or listening to singing even without musical instruments.  Singing at weddings is considered sunna by some or if it urges followers to obey the sunna etc!

k2.3 p 382  It is invalid to transact something which is not useful…..such as vermin, a single grain of wheat or unlawful musical instruments.  (can't sell/buy musical instruments..)

W52.1 (426-431) p989 playing stringed instruments; listening to them; playing reed instruments; listening to them; beating a long drum (kuba); or listening to it..(enormities! -seriously bad acts).

How much was he paid for this propaganda?  No doubt he lives in luxury in Dubai, ignoring the slavery and millions living in massive slums!   Keep smoking Yusuf but watch where you pluck!   As for peace---unbelievable, what can you say!!!

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

History - Infidels' Resistance

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
